This scam offering money has been doing the rounds for some time. Don’t get caught
I recently received an email and think it is a scam. I replied and had a response but then asked some more questions and have heard nothing since. It is allegedly from Adrian and Gillian Bayford, who won the biggest Euro Millions lottery prize of £148.6m last August . In the email they claim to want to give cash grants of £1m to five individuals, five NGOs and 10 charity organisations and say my email address was submitted to them as that of a possible recipient. The email includes a link to a Guardian story about the couple’s win.
ML, by email
This email has been doing the rounds for some time. You should have been convinced this was a scam when you received their extremely badly worded response to your email, asking for lots of personal details and refer to their bank, the ProCredit Bank Ukraine. Delete immediately.
